. remember? he lost to john mccain that year. but that year, 2008, also was not john mccain's first effort at winning the republican presidential nomination. he had run before as well. he had run in the year 2000, when he lost to george w. bush. and while that john mccain campaign and his loss that year has mostly been remembered for the egregiously racist dirty tricks played against john mccain in the south carolina primary that year, that's mostly what we think of when we think of him losing to george w. bush that year, now what is starting to become the more salient thing about that losing run, about that losing attempt at winning the republican presidential nomination, what seems more salient now is who john mccain's national co-chair was for that run. it was republican senator chuck hagel. there he is. you can see him in the little circle on the left there. with john mccain's entourage as john mccain was getting ready to launch his presidential bid back in 2000. this is the same chuck hagel who is president obama's nominee for defense secretary now and who john mccain spent the day to
on the record saying that they would look at revenue to block these cuts, the sequester. john mccain said that the other day. republicans to exact a political victory here need to get spending cuts. i mean, they settled for a deal in the fiscal cliff that was not good for party leaders. they are going to hold very, very tight on that, and, by the way, after the sequester -- >> do you think that tea party response is almost sort of covering their bases there? i mean, the tea partiers get to say we had a strong message and held tight to our values. you know, these moderates went and made deals with the president. we're not to blame. if you -- in effect trying to sort of head off primary challenge if one is going to come up in 2014. >> that's the question. ran paul is playing a tough game. he has a personal history with mcconnell, who supported, you know, his challenger down there originally, and now he is trying to come out and do what cantor has done, which is get credits for making noise, but ultimately to jake's point, what you have here is a little bit like if you have ever been in a re
. there was a passionate debate in this country about whether waterboarding is torture led in part by john mccain. that was easy for them to cover because it was so out there. romney didn't talk about it and i didn't hear it in the debates and the press, including the commentators have been too passive in my view, just like they were in the run up to the iraq war. it should be an issue. it should be debated. >> jane hall used to tangle with o'reilly. >> regularly. >> was this an enlightening debate? >> i think it was good. i think you did well and i think he shifted the terms of the debate, which he likes to do. first of all, he does not like nbc. going back to keith ooberman. he shifted it back to what he wanted to talk about and i thought you had a very substantive debate, which was a good thing. >> he wanted to talk about himself and how he felt i had wronged him and i was trying to get to higher ground. did o'reilly convince you that i was mistaken in saying i had made a glaring omission? >> he lost me in that because there was so much criminology to it. i would have said, in that discussion

to axiron.com. >> things got heated yesterday on nbc's meet the press when senator john mccain accused the obama administration of a huge coverup in regard to the benghazi terror attacks, watch this. >> there are many, many questions and we've had a massive coverup on the part of the administration. >> a massive coverup of what. susan rice says there was a lot of confusion. >> i'm asking you, do you care-- i'm asking you, do you care, i'm asking you do you care whether four americans died and the reasons for that and shouldn't people be held accountable for the fact that four americans died? >> you said there's a coverup, a coverup of what? >> a coverup-- of the information concerns the deaths of four brave americans. >> great question, do you care. and a new e-book says it could be a counter for john brennan, the cia officers. and former u.s. army ranger jack murphy and former navy seal brandon web and on the floor of our studio we projected a map of benghazi ap before this, we're going through a timeline of the events of that night. good to sigh both. >> thank you for having us. >> s
and you know, john mccain is actually the perfect example of why it is about the man himself, and that is he said last night after he had kind of given lots of different explanations, all of them i think are credible from his point of view, that the real fundamental thing that has bothered most of hagel's fellow republicans here, former colleagues here, is the way that he defied his party, defied his president, then george w. bush, on iraq, and that really did not sit well with many republicans here, and they remember that. it's a whole bunch of other issues but that at its core is the fundamental problem. >> so rich, i'll ask you as a republican strategy, are the concerns over chuck hagel serious enough to filibuster and block confirmation? that's the first time this has before happened in the history of u.s. politics. >> well, everybody says that, but that would get two thumbs up in the political fact check so john bolten was blocked and the ambassador to the u.n. was a cabinet level slot. the republicans i think dana have said that they'll probably let this thing go after
'm reading it. i want to. yes. when the soviets like john mccain tells you you belch too much, soak and spew too much fire, you know you've got a problem. >> she likes it. that's a bad day. that's a bad day. >> this is not painful for her. >> like three, four days later, she's still laughing. >> when someone says something about you, that's a bad day. ted cruz, a republican freshman in the senate out front and center in his republicans' efforts to josh chuck hagel has a problem. he's an honoree piece of work, just six weeks from arrival, he's already known for nay saying and his nitpicking and his itch to upbraid lawmakers who are vastly senior to him who have sacrificed more than he has and who deserve a measure of respect. or at least courtesy that isn't his me kirks er. he was head of the harvard debate team. >> princeton or harvard. >> a very bright guy. >> a little too big for his britches. >> people that knew him before said you would like him. >> he has been kicking shins, being comparely rude and i guess maybe it's all a marketing ploy to raise the most money among conservatives nati
the establishment. the karl roves, the john mccains say oh, surely now we'll get behind the gang of 8 and do the immigration reform. they can't get the house contingent to support even that, which is like a knife at the heart of the republican party demographically. so it shows this will be a long battle within the gop that will rage on for quite a while. not least because the biggest donors are not necessarily in tune with the base. some are, like the coke brothers, but others on wall street are not with the base like on immigration, abortion, gay rights. >> taxes only. >> taxes only. >> it will be really interesting to see on guns, thinking about president obama out in minnesota today with all the cops standing behind him. on background checks in particular, 92 public support for universal background checks. if republicans can't figure out a way to support something that has 92% to support the republicans and democrat also on that, i think, i don't know what happens next on them. it will be fascinating. >> it will be fun to watch from our point of view. >> okay, you can turn your tv back o

saying that plan would be dead on arrival if it were presented to congress. john mccain accusing the white house of intentionally leaking that draft proposal. that's an assertion the white house has pushed back against. this is a delicate dance, martin, and this sort of ruffled feathers could give someone like marco rubio some cover to spar publicly with the president but then to continue to work on immigration reform behind the scenes and not necessarily have to own this as president obama's immigration reform proposal if, in fact, they do come up with something. i think what's significant is that after this weekend and that leaked draft proposal, no one walked away from the table. by all accounts everyone is still moving forward on immigration reform. of course, it's still an uphill battle because lawmakers are divided on some of the key issues. >> kristin, thank you. >>> coming up, herman cain was actually right about something. seriously. stay with us. so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this...

and john mccain who said that they would close guantanamo if they became president. it was also the guy who was still president, the guy who had opened up guantanamo in the first place. >> i'd like to end guantanamo. i'd like it to be over with. >> everybody knew that guantanamo was going to close. there was nobody against it. the prisoners who were still there when barack obama became president, well, the expectation was that a lot of them would continue to be processed the way that hundreds of them had already been processed by president george w. bush, which is that they would be sent to some other country. they would be repatriated. for the prisoners that were not going to be released anywhere for say the marquee prisoner who was ever held at guantanamo, khalid shaikh mohamud, the expectation for guys like him was they wouldn't get out of off juror pseudo limbo in cuba. they would get off that legal limbo that we hold in this prison offshore in a communist country that we don't have relations with and get out of that limbo and come here and face justice. attorney general eric holder ann
techniques. john mccain has raised those issues. but in terms of the democratic group and actually susan collins was one of those as well, the 11 senators led by john wyden and three of them are on the committee including wyden and susan collins, and they were pushing for the release of this. and then mike rogers on our air yesterday, the house intelligence chair not in the confirmation process, but he lent his voice. senator feinstein was obviously working behind the scenes. and so finally last night around 6:30, 7:00 last night, the white house relented and the president called wyden. i know you guys are going to talk to wyden later. but this is a very big deal because now the drone policy is going to be central to this confirmation hearing today. >> you know, yesterday pete wehner wrote this. and he's quoting barack obama from may 29th, 2009, the famous speech at the national archives. where he says, let me be clear. we are at war with al qaeda, but we need to update our institutions and do so with an abiding confidence in the rule of law and due process. in checks and balances and ac
, john mccain, and todd coburn have all told us they would oppose a filibuster if it came to that. we don't know when the vote will happen. first he has to go through committee. that will likely happen later this week. the senate vote will happen shortly after that. this is, again, some really enterprising reporting from our producers, ted stray felt and rachel bashaw. >>> looking better for chuck hagel. wouldn't have to worry about a filibuster. even though someone like john mccain wouldn't vote for a filibuster, it's at least clear to me based on his questioning and statements, he won't vote at the same time to confirm him either. >> correct. that's correct. when it comes to the floor, would he vote against -- potentially vote against. he hasn't said that for sure. potentially vote against hagel's nomination. the question at this point is whether or not hagel would be blocked altogether, whether or not they could get to that point. mccain has said he would not participate in that kind of filibuster. >> maybe we can forget about a filibuster. dan i dana doing excellent reporting. >>> a c
, once in the stands for george w. bush. on the subject of dreams and nightmares, guess which one john mccain was having in 2007? a big yawn from harry reid in 2010. and for vice president biden, perhaps a moment of meditation in 2011. mr. biden's hands have their very own chapter in the state of the union history book. so much sitting and standing and clapping, easy to see why he might have a timing issue. >> less than 1%. >> reporter: -- there is the air boxing fist pump -- >> that dream is why the working class kid from scranton can sit behind me. >> reporter: and, of course, the palms to the sky shrug. >> nobody messes with joe. am i right? >> reporter: we have the constitution to thanks for this annual address. and even if the state of the union is animated, sleepy, or dreamy, according to the president -- >> the state of our union will always be strong. >> john berman, this is why i love you. let me just say this, shouldn't everyone in that sacred room just always sort of assume you can be on camera at any moment in time, right? on your best behavior. >> absolutely. drink 12 cups of cof
at the faces we see of the republican party, the lindsey grahams, the john mccains, the john boehners, they're angry old men. they're not appealing as human beings. forget issuewise. and clearly the democrats have barack obama. and i want to come back to a debate that we were having. you've covered president after president. it doesn't matter how they shift on the issues until they have the right delivery system, the right human beings who are not tone deaf to an attitude that this country wants. they're never going to get back. ronald reagan got that. to your point earlier, john connelley didn't get that, joe. we said this off the air. that's why he was not elected president. i think it's all moot until they change literally and figuratively the faces of the party. >> well, it can't be just the cosmetics, however. >> not cosmetics, but humanity. >> a combination of the two, it's about the subject matter they're dealing with as well as the manner in which they present it. ronald reagan -- my favorite story about ronald reagan was when he was in a deep recession, they decided they had to do
that you made before. number one this comes from people like john mccain and others you know who very much oppose enhanced interrogation. and he has some experience as obviously he does. and other people a, because of american values, even stan mcchrystal said this. >> i read his book. it's a good book. >> okay. do you agree with his position? when you say enhanced interrogation, why don't we call it what many believe it ought to be called torture? >> because it's not. >> what's the difference? >> the difference is we went through a long difficult, and labored process with the justice department before we started the enhanced interrogation programs. >> tell us where the red line is. do we got approval for the programs that did go, that they were "not torture." and we got signed off by the president of the united states by the entire national security council, briefing on all of those programs. >> but we stopped water boarding. >> we did. >> because? >> because there was so much flack over it. >> but if it was getting such good results -- >> it got good results. >> b
. the white house has issued a statement saying that the president called senators rubio, john mccain, and lindsey graham today to discuss can a shared commitment to, quote, bipartisan commonsense immigration reform and to commend the senators for bipartisan progress. let's discuss what's going on in our strategy session. joining us, our cnn contributors, paul begala and ana navarro. senator mccain, senator graham on this issue, how key is it? >> you know, it's key that it happened. i'm glad that it finally happened. frankly, though, it's mind blowing. it's amazing that it's taking this long for it to happen and that it's taken a leap. you've got a white house that has shown tremendous dysfunctionality this week. first of all, there was a leak of a bill that was drafted unilaterally without seeking any input from any of the republicans. they just stopped today. this is weeks after the bill was drafted and days after the bill was leaked. so i'm saying to the white house, if you are serious about passing immigration reform, and i hope you are, you need to coordinate better. there are re
